For the 2nd year Alli's Journey will be joining various charities at the Scotiabank Charity Challenge Run taking place on October 14, 2012.
Alli's Journey is one of the few charities that support young adult cancer. The charity was founded in 2006 by Alli Shapiro as she battled with Hodgkin's Lymphoma; she saw the need to support the young adult 18-45 with cancer.
Alli's Journey provides support and assistance to young adults with cancer in two directions:
Alli recognized that young adults fighting cancer have different needs and that this demographic of cancer patients is largely underserved. She was one of those patients for over seven years, losing her battle in July 2006.
We are inviting you to build a roster of team members and raise money for Alli's Journey. Incentives are great and we need you to come on board and run or walk.
Some of the incentives for now (many others will be added shortly):
